If you have not been paying attention, I should probably let you know. It has been hot. The whole country has been covered in “red”, well the whole country except Seattle (screen shot from Intellicast, my favorite weather website).

While I still prefer fans and open windows, after last summer: I even went so far as to pick up an AC to cool and dehumidify the house when it gets too bad. I am glad I did.

That said it is still hard to find ways to cool off. Sometimes a drink with friends is an awesome way to socialize and hang out. One of my favorite summertime drinks is the passion lemonade from Starbucks. This is by the way super easy to make on your own. All you need is 1 part iced passion tea and 1 part lemonade.

Now if you are looking for a cocktail this is a great drink to grow up a little. To do this: make your own Passion Lemonade:

start by brewing a half gallon of TAZO Passion tea (about 6 tea bags)

add honey or other sweetener while it is still warn to help it dissolve

sweeten to taste and then a tiny bit sweeter

add the juice of fresh squeezed lemons (about 6)

in a drink shaker (or pitcher) add:


4 parts tea lemon mix

1 part Limoncello

2 parts vodka

Serve over ice or in a martini glass, if you want to get super fancy you can sugar the rim.

Sit back and enjoy responsibly.
